"Great! Which car will you have?
I'll have the green XJ40, with a couple of spots of primer. Is it pretty self explanatory where in the park everyone is meeting? Signs, etc?


Seeya there."

"Hi Dennis,
the hooks you speak of are the hood latches. You pull back and twist on each one and they release the hood. Then, you must lift the hood forward, up and away from firewall."

"Hi Renea,
I'm getting back in initially as a spectator. Someone just gave me a 1977 Jag XJ6L. (as with most Jags that have sit for a bit, it neds quite a bit of work) Not sure I'll take that vintage racing or not, but I have seen that several clubs…"

"Thanx Mike! Although not new to the fab/rebuild hobby, I am new to Jags and things British (well, an ex gf was really into Land Rovers.. not sure if that counts..LOL) Its nice to see that everything thats rusty on my Jag is an easily sourced part.

"I own an 05 XRS. The one with the Yamaha sourced 200HP motor. 6spd, 8500 rpm redline. Not vintage but still mighty fun.
I also own a 99 TLC and an 87 4Runner, modified for hardcore rock crawling.
I have been involved in the 4WD community for over 20…"

"I have been given a 1974 XJ6L. I have been doing a bunch of research to find out what to look for as for problems, etc. This car hasn't moved in possibly 15 years. It was under a tarp in the woman's back driveway. In looking at it, it seems pretty…"

  • Hello to a fellow nutmegger!

    Glad to hear from such a long-standing fan. Are you getting back into vintage racing? If so, you must inquire about our Vintage Festival on Labor Day weekend. You can send an email to vintagefestival@limerock.com with all your information. Murray Smith is the co-chairman of the event now and he would be happy to speak with you.

    Also, you must join the Lime Rock Park Group. You can join by clicking here:

    Look forward to having you at the track again this year!
  • David, Yes Reno/Sparks. We are however, about a 7 hr. drive from Vegas. Tahoe 45 minutes away! Depends when you come out, the Vintage Races in these parts are in early May. Nice event. Our clubs annual Concours and Slalom will be in Mid-July at Tahoe. Hopefully close to 100 Jags from across the west. Cheers.
  • David, I would go to xk's unlimited for parts. You can request a free catalog. From this you can basically build a car from scratch. Welsh Ent., Coventry West, SNG Barrett are also good parts suppliers. I'm in the process of restoring/assembling a 1961 Mark IX Jaguar. Good luck. Post some pics, as will I.
  • Hi Dave
    Good luck with the project.
    The various Vintage Racing clubs have different cut off dates for "vintage. Some are 1972; 1980 and/or race what you brought.
    Check the map on www.myvrl.com for the club nearest you and call to discuss your car before you begin to spend money.
    Good luck - Stephen
